Increasing cases of COVID, hospital fallout is called Speranza-English

(ANSA)-Rome, July 5-With the rapid epidemic of the most infectious subvariants of the Omicron strain, the number of cases of COVID is increasing in Italy, and infections in Italian hospitals are “effects”. You need to measure carefully to mitigate. Health Minister Roberto Speranza said on Tuesday.

He said the situation was different from the peak pandemic situation because the symptoms were generally much milder. “But if you need more beds, you’re ready to act.” In the fall, the minister said the age group that would automatically receive additional boosters of the COVID vaccine would be “expanded.”

The fourth dose is currently available for those over 80 years of age, residents of long-term care facilities, and categories classified as vulnerable and vulnerable.

Speranza added that face masks, which are no longer required except for public transport, should continue to be used “in dangerous situations such as crowded gatherings.” (ANSA).
